Pizza parlour

After two years on Patton Avenue, Favilla's New York Pizza is growing with a new dining room. Until now, the restaurant's pizzas, pasta dinners and sandwiches have been available by carry-out or delivery only.

The expansion into the adjacent shop will provide seating for 39 people. Jeanette Favilla, who co-owns the business with her husband, Andy, explains that visiting with customers is one of the perks of owning a business. “They can actually sit there and hang out with us instead of just getting food and leaving,” she says.

Over the next few months, the Favillas hope to add a few more dishes to their menu as well as beer and wine, but those changes will happen gradually.

So what's the best dish to try in the new dining room? Jeanette recommends anything with eggplant. “Everybody who doesn't like eggplant tries it and loves it,” she says. Try it as a pizza topping, on a sandwich or over penne.

Favilla's New York Pizza, 1093 Patton Ave., is open Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight and Sunday from noon to 9 p.m. For more information, visit Favilla's on Facebook or call 225-3032.
